Three possible options for the venue of the 57th Eurovision Song Contest are being considered, as reported from the press conference of Azerbaijani minister of Sports and Youth, Azad Rahimov.

As told by the minister, one of the options is connected with the Sport Concert Complex named after Heydar Aliyev, which has been reconstructed recently. It has 7,800 seats and 1,000 more can also be added.

Another option is to hold the contest at the Tofig Bahramov Republican Stadium. "It will be possible by closing the stadium’s roof and conducting reconstruction work so it will be possible to hold the contest at this stadium", Mr Rahimovadded.

And finally the most debated project is the construction of a new concert complex to hold the contest in one of the most interesting places of Baku, on the boulevard of the National Flag Square.
